The Austin Center for Grief & Loss is celebrating its annual Holders of Hope fundraiser on Thursday, October 15, 2020. Donors and supporters play a special role by allowing Austin Grief to help heal the pain of trauma and loss through transformative and therapeutic services.

This annual event secures the funding needed to provide the important services The Austin Center for Grief & Loss offers to our community. All the benefits of sponsoring our event remain the same with one notable exception – no tables! 


In lieu of tables, for those sponsoring at the Lamp Lighter level and above, we’re delighted to provide you with a special cheese tray from Antonelli’s with all the accompaniments.  This will be hand-delivered to your front door, along with your swag bag and a few other surprises. If you want to host your “table guests” at your home for this virtual party, let us know and we’ll ensure you have plenty of goodies for your whole crew. 


Our event is called Holders of Hope for one reason. Austin Grief is committed to standing in the space of grief and helping our clients hold onto that tender hope for the future. Please join our growing number of generous individuals and businesses who offer gifts of financial support, time, and energy to help fulfill our mission. The time is now to help us celebrate and appreciate the healing that takes place at The Austin Center for Grief & Loss. Please contact Kim Nugent-Anderson (knugentanderson@austingrief.org) for additional information.


We look forward to spending an inspiring evening with you, our Holders of Hope. Thank you for your generous support of The Austin Center for Grief & Loss.
